Jake Elliott, welcome to Philly. The rookie drilled the longest field goal in Eagles history, a 61-yarder, to defeat the New York Giants, 27-24.

Here is the call of the game-winner from Merrill Reese and it is just as you expect it to be:

  1. Did Merrill have a stroke or something? He sounds like he’s slurring his words, and not in a drunk way.

    1. Saw Merrill wrapping up some kind of show about 5 years ago at Steppy’s in East Norriton. We both left together he was LOADED. I followed him swerving all over the road until he pulled into Blue Bell Country Club. This is at 6:30 PM. I’m sure the local cops have given many passes to this drunken moron.

  2. Sorry, but I’ve always felt that Reese is very overrated, especially for a radio play-by-play guy. He doesn’t paint a great mental picture of the play as it’s happening. Hardly ever explains how a play is taking shape. His trademark “30-20-10-touchdown!” is old hat and has been for over 20 years. You have no idea where the player is on the field, who’s chasing him, etc. The Eagles could do so much better. Seems like a nice guy though.

  3. Merrill Reese’s voice gives me the creeps. He doesn’t sound like a real person, more like an animated Disney character. I don’t get the big fuss over him.
